Arms of Grace

I spent this past weekend at the Wesleyan Holiness Women Clergy conference, Come to the Water, where we explored the theme, “Rhythms of Grace.” There was so much good stuff that came out of the weekend in various forms – main sessions, workshops, discussions with friends, times of prayer – that I haven’t even really had a chance to process it all and come to what my “take-aways” are. But yesterday as I was listening to some music, a new song caught my ear that kind of fit with the weekend so I thought I’d share it with you today.

Good to Know
Francesca Battistelli – Hundred More Years

Hello, old friend
I know it’s been a while
I’m here again
And it won’t be the last time
I fall apart
But You won’t let me get too far
You’re speaking to my heart

(Chorus)
It’s good to know
It’s good to feel the arms of grace
To know that my mistakes are covered by Your love
It’s good to know
It’s good to see that You won’t change
When it’s said and done
You’ll always be enough
To know that I can always come back home
It’s good to know
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh
It’s good to know
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh

Goodbye, old me
Yeah there’s so much more that I
Know I could be
So take my worries with
You when you leave
There’s hope that I am counting on
‘Cause I’m never too far gone

(Chorus)

It’s good to know
That there’s a second chance
Know that it’s all in Your hands
Even if I just don’t understand
‘Cause I know that I will be alright
I finally see the other side
It takes the darkness to open up your eyes
Sometimes

It’s good to know
It’s good to know
I’m covered by Your love

It’s good to know
It’s good to see that You won’t change
When it’s said and done You’ll always be enough
To know that I can always come back home
To know that You will never let me go
It’s good to know
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh
It’s good to know
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh

    Great song. It was wonderful to be a part of that weekend with you. Know that I cheer for you and wave your banner, friend. Love you 🙂

    “It’s good to feel the arms of grace” That line resonates with me about the weekend.

      That line and “It takes the darkness to open up your eyes Sometimes” (particularly in reference to some of the stuff shared in the Social Justice panel) are the two that really hit me as I was listening to it.

      Arms of grace are AMAZING – both God’s and friends’! Love you, too!
